More pixels have been added to AOC’s curved gaming G1 Series by introducing the CQ32G1, a 31.5” QHD monitor. Aimed at casual gamers looking for crisper gameplay, the CQ32G1 raises the bar with the higher resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, and offers the same 144Hz refresh rate, one millisecond response time as well as AMD FreeSync support just like its Full HD G1 Series siblings.

Offering increased fidelity and details thanks to QHD resolution, a huge enveloping 31.5” display size and 1800R curvature add a whole new level of immersion to the gameplay experience. The CQ32G1 is available in Europe as of February with an MSRP of £359.

The AOC CQ32G1 is equipped with a 31.5” VA panel, with a 144Hz refresh rate and one millisecond response time. Thanks to its QHD resolution, gamers will benefit from logical increments in screen resolution, which makes the image sharp and comfortable to use without any scaling required.

The CQ32G1’s narrow bezels (two millimetre), slim black borders (five millimetre) and the frameless design make this display an excellent contender for a multi-monitor set-up. Textured, red and black accents, and a V-shaped, tilt-enabled stand complement the frameless panel for a refined look. The physical immersion is achieved by the encapsulating and aggressive 1800R curvature.

With the 3000:1 static contrast ratio and 124% sRGB gamut coverage, visual content ranging from photos, movies, videos to fast-paced games comes to life and becomes highly enjoyable. The large size of the display and its wide viewing angles of 178/178° also make the display usable for multiple people simultaneously. Two HDMI 1.4 as well as one DisplayPort 1.2 inputs enable connecting multiple sources.

AOC’s Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode allows longer gaming sessions with less eye strain (moderate use is still advised). To better differentiate opponents, gamers can adjust colour saturation and grey levels with 20 levels of detail with AOC Game Color. AOC Dial Point (on-screen aiming indicator) also helps gamers with their accuracy and aiming where an in-game crosshair is lacking.

In addition to the CQ32G1, the G1 series family consists of three more models: The C24G1 with a 24-inch display, the C27G1 with a 27” display, and the C32G1 with a 32” display. All three models are based on a 16:9 aspect ratio curved VA-type panels with a high refresh rate of 144Hz, fast one millisecond MPRT response time, FreeSync support, and run at a 1920x1080 Full-HD resolution.

AOC’s CQ32G1 is available in February for an MSRP of £359.
